I love this quote because it reminds me that I have the power to change things. If you watch the news, read the newspaper or even look at Facebook – it can be filled with negative images, stories, sadness, etc… It’s too much for me sometimes. I want people to be kind and compassionate to one another. I want the world to be better.
I can be the change I want to see. It starts with you and me. We can be more compassionate and kind to people we encounter. Something as small as a smile to someone you pass in the parking garage or a thank you to the crossing guard or a kind note to a teacher. Just taking the time to acknowledge their presence, makes the world a better place. This week I saw an elderly man having a difficult time trying to stand up. I whispered to my husband to help him. The man was so appreciative. That small act of helping out another person made my day. That’s the change I want to be.
We can be positive when others around are negative. We can choose to be kind when the world is cruel.
